Tropes invoked by this actor include:

  • What Could Have Been: According to Variety, Majors nearly missed out on joining the MCU (let alone getting considered for the role of Kang) because he walked out of his first general meeting with Marvel (after having been kept waiting due to busy executives). Luckily, Casting Director Sarah Finn caught up with Majors before he left the building and the rest is history.
